Hello i wonder what hosts there are for official game servers. I know you can use dedicated however those are too expensive are there cheap ways to host your games official servers? They do not have to be so powerful.

If your game is a "twitch" game (like a FPS) then you really do need self-managed "root" servers. Those are typically available from about $50/month and up. If your budget is less than this, you probably should not include the idea of "official servers" in your game design.

If your game is slower-paced (occasional schedule jitters of 50-100 milliseconds don't matter) then you can go with whatever Virtual Private Server hosting provider you want -- I've heard good things about Linode; others use Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud; even cheaper providers include Interserver.net; if you're mainly Windows, perhaps Microsoft Azure is more of your thing.
